in response to reader comment: Turkish victimization comedy revisited

Submitted by brown (United States), Apr 24, 2013 at 01:34

Look man i see that you are polish and you take the side of armenians. Thats your choice to do so. But what happened was a war called WW1 that also took the lives of 1 million turks. İt was an organized campaign against them and many of them died, but it is not different from what united states has done to the native people or nearly as bad as what the germans AND POLES did to the jews in WW2. Turkey has Almost always be friend of the jewish people. Ottoman empire was defeated in WW1 but fought hard to keep anatolian territory and now armenians have country of armenia. As many turkish died as did armenians in ww1. So Any attempt to reconize a so called "genocide" is an attack on turkey, that is unless you criticize us for being less successful than the nazis, but the extermination of entire armenian race was never the goal.
